Elizabethan Wall Paintings Room Update:



THE ELIZABETHAN WALL PAINTINGS ROOM IS NOW OPEN

Opened on 16th September, the refurbished Wall Paintings Room is now welcoming visitors.

See this family room belonging to an Elizabethan merchant from Thame come to life before your eyes. Hear authentic music and listen to the voice of the man who we believe, owned the house in which the paintings were found. It is a unique experience which has taken over three years to develop.

Thanks to a lot of hard work from the museum team and funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are now able to give a glimpse of life from 400 years ago using the latest 21st century technology.
